Product description

In 1946, an alien virus that rewrites human DNA was accidentally unleashed in the skies over New York City. It killed ninety percent of those it infected. Nine percent survived, mutated into tragically deformed creatures. And one percent gained superpowers. The Wild Cards shared-universe series, created and edited by "New York Times "#1 bestseller George R. R. Martin (called "the American Tolkien" by "Time"), is the tale of the history of the world since then--and of the heroes among the one percent. Now, in the latest Wild Cards mosaic novel, we get to know the hard-bitten world of Manhattan's Fifth Precinct--or "Fort Freak," as cops and malefactors alike call the cop-shop where every other desk sergeant, detective, and patrol officer is more than human. Featuring original work by writers such as Cherie Priest, author of the bestselling "Boneshaker"; Paul Cornell, Hugo-nominated comic book and "Doctor Who "writer; David Anthony Durham, winner of 2009's John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer; and many others, "Fort Freak "is one of the strongest offerings yet in the ongoing Wild Cards project.

Review quote

"Delicious...Everything I'd hoped for in a new Wild Cards book. The character interactions and plot twists have exactly the complexity, surprise, and unsentimental realism I'd expect out of a George R. R. Martin project." --Austin Grossman, author of "Soon I Will Be Invincible "on" Inside Straight"
